Adam Miles Christoper Bell was a friend of mine at school and soon after we left he became more active with his writing than ever before, especially on his wattpad account. He has often came to me for advice on titles and just writing in general after I recieved my publishing contract for Children of the Movement in 2014.

“I love writing stories and have been trying to write since I was 7 years old, which is when I came up with my first story idea. Ever since then I have been coming up with new ideas but have never got to writing them into an actual story. However, recently I started to get into it again and have started writing many stories. My two favorites being A World Reborn and A Demon Within.” – Adam’s Wattpad bio

Lately, his account has been gaining some heat with readers seeming to be pouring in for his novel “A World Reborn“. The novel has 4 parts so far and is still a working progress.

Synopsis and cover:

64686388-176-k456815“Nothing and no-one is safe anymore. This world is no longer our own and everyday we must hide from the dangers of the threat that now walks these lands.

Only one native dares to stand up against the Invasion. But he will not do it alone.

When the world is being taken from you, the only way to fight back is by breaking the rules, even your own personal ones. The world is being attacked by Invaders. However THESE invaders may just be a little more familiar than you may think…”

This is a little disappointing but I hope you understand…

As you all know, in exactly 2 weeks time I had my heart set on releasing my new novel: The Price Of Fabulous…

This is now going to be postponed until later this year. I am going to explain the reasons why, let’s just hope you can understand them.

The book is in the finishing stages and is on track for release but unfortunately I have had a dramatic relapse in mental health with regards to my anxiety and depression through personal events that were unforeseen until I came home from finishing my first year at BCU.

The reason why I want to postpone the release is because I don’t feel like I am well enough to do my best promotional work while I seek the medical attention I require.

I also have become more aware that I have slacked off with my blogging so I will do the best I can to pick it back up again and hopefully I will have a new release date for you soon.

Thank you!

Big News for my Writing Career!

On the 23rd of March 2017, it will mark 1 year since the release of my first novel – Children of the Movement. Exciting stuff right?

cover

Children of the Movement was a book that I had poured my heart and soul into for years and when I finally held it in my hands after signing the contract to have it published it honestly felt like I had achieved every dream I have had since I was a child.

My cousin, Courtney Greener designed the cover which is something we wanted to do together since childhood and now I have found out that it’s in Waterstones! How amazing!

Synopsis: A world brainwashed into following the wrong moral as children are starved of the imagination to believe anything different. Bethany-Anne begins her journey of self-discovery with help from friends she meets in and around the prison-like sector that she once called home. No one is safe to dream what they want to dream or love who they want to love… until the movement begins.

So, with that being said, here is another exciting announcement, I will be releasing my new novel “The Price of Fabulous” on 04/06/2017 to mark my sister’s birthday in honour of her giving the book it the amazing title.

Synopsis:

“The story you are about to witness is not a happy one. It’s more of a struggle, really. It’s a journey into womanhood but the path we were forced upon isn’t pretty. I’m Kayla Charis, by the way, and this is the story of me and my younger sister, Georgia and how we became who we are.

Mum was a good woman but her infatuations with men were the problem. They were the monsters we feared in the dark. Nothing was coming out of our wardrobes or from under our beds to scare us in the night. They came from the next room whenever they pleased.

Mum was married to her job but she had many sordid affairs with less than worthy gentlemen. It was these men that were responsible for this story. They do not deserve a thank you.”

5 Ways I Relate To Harley Quinn

Harley Quinn aka. Doctor Harleen Quinnzel… Let’s be honest here she is the prettiest and most lovable female psychopath on screen, in animations and comics… but for some reason, I can relate to her character quite a lot.

5: She Knows She Annoys People

Harley is very self-aware of how annoying she can be and knows that it just might get her hurt or even killed. Let’s face it, in the real world, you are often told not to open your mouth to the wrong person because it will get you hurt and I am always self-conscious about annoying people. So much so, that I now warn people that I will annoy them eventually.

4: Her Cringe-Worthy Pick-Up Lines to Her Beloved Mr. J

We are all known for making cringy puns and pick up lines when all up in some boy or girls DMs, well Harley becomes queen of them all as she tries to bed her pudding in Batman: The Animated Series.

Let’s be honest, I can’t be the only one who relates to this way of flirting, right?

3: She Had High Aspirations In Life

Let’s not forget that before she became the infamous Harley Quinn she was Doctor Harleen Quinzel of Arkham Asylum in Gotham. Being a doctor takes a lot of hard work and dedication, especially to work in a psychiatric hospital filled with the world’s craziest criminals, am I right?

It is a shame that she gave it all up for Mr. J, but the wrong kind of relationship such as the domestic abuse she receives from her “pudding”Β  can ruin all aspects of your life.

2: She Wears A Smile For Her Man

In a violent relationship, you do anything to keep the abuser happy…

Her referral to him as her “boss” rather than her partner, shows her position in Mr. J’s life as not only does he think her inferior but she thinks that of herself too. She’ll do anything to keep him happy, which seems to include smiling on demand.

1: She is a Domestic Abuse Survivor

OHHHHH, here’s the part everyone who idolizes herΒ  9because of Suicide Squad) forgets about…Harley and Joker aren’t “goals”.

She’s a victim, or more was, she seems to have become more of a survivor now.

Sure, she doesn’t handle it as well as real abuse victims would… becoming a serial killer and all that but she survives and she’s definitely a stronger woman from embracing the effects the abuse have had on her mind. She’s fierce!

Sunday Rewrites #3 – Finding My Wings

Synopsis – It’s normal to feel like you don’t belong especially in your teenage years but not from the whole planet. Could you imagine making this discovery about yourself?

Reason for rewriting – It was written for a writing competition 3 years ago so I thought I’d patch it up.
